Morgan School District, located in Morgan, Utah, strive to create a challenging, safe, caring and supportive learning environment where every student can learn and develop their social, academic and technological skills. With an emphasis on technology, Morgan School District needed a solution to monitor and control its devices in the classroom.
Before Impero Education Pro, Morgan School District utilized Lanschool across its PCs. This solution helped to monitor student activity online, however the filtering capabilities were limited and led to Morgan School District looking for an all-encompassing classroom management and student online safety solution.
Morgan School District began their search for an alternative to Lanschool via Google and soon discovered Impero Education Pro. Morgan School District swiftly reached out to Impero and attended a demonstration which provided an understanding of Impero Education Pro’s cross-platform, consolidated classroom management, network management and student online safety solution. Morgan School District trialled a variety of software packages but chose Impero Education Pro because of its combined features.
With the help of the Impero support team, the implementation of Impero Education Pro was described by the MSD Director as “fairly easy”, and was up and running across Morgan School District within a few hours.
Since implementing Impero Education Pro, Morgan School District has realized several core benefits, including:
Support digital learning – With simple classroom control tools, Morgan School District can monitor, control and manage its devices directly from the classroom with ease.
Focus learning – Through live thumbnail monitoring and keyword detection, Morgan School District can easily limit distractions and ensure students are focused on the task at hand.
Maximize learning time – By monitoring directly in the classroom, Morgan School District can get the most out of the learning time during classes, by keeping students on task.

How has Impero Education Pro helped support digital learning?
Moving from Lanschool over to Impero Education Pro was pretty straightforward. The menu bars are easier to adopt and the teachers have been self-sufficient with the software, it’s allowed me to not have to micro-manage as much! We’re mainly running Impero Education Pro on our lab environment, it’s useful to see what students are accessing. The logging and keyword filtering have been an additional benefit, it’s great to lock down sites (even adding URLs on the fly) to stop students from wasting time. Our teachers are mainly using Impero Education Pro to view their students screens to make sure they’re on task or for sharing files, web links and even their own screen to help deliver a better understanding of what is expected.
What are your next steps?
We’re excited to start utilizing the power management features and interested in all the new cloud features. We’re hoping the new and improved interface will be even easier for our teachers to use.
